Very funny parody of superhero films
18 October 2002 | by Alberto-7See all my reviews

A rip-roaring parody of superhero films. The young ones will enjoy the cute characters and derring-do. Older viewers will discover a story full of surprises and a strong message about our consumer-oriented world. The characters are quite funny and well developed. The best is MiniVip who is trying so hard to be a great superhero like his brother SuperVip that he doesn't realize just how thick and vain his brother really is. A refreshing change from American mass-produced animation films. I give it 8 superheroes out of 10.
